Have you ever looked at your insurance policy and wondered just exactly what it is you are paying for?


Everyone knows that they are legally required to carry liability insurance.  But many people don’t really understand what that means or how it works. 


In simple terms, liability insurance pays to fix damage that you cause to someone else. 


On your auto insurance policy, this is split into three pieces.  Here is an example:


Bodily Injury:  50/100

Personal Property: 50


Let’s say that this was your coverage amount and you hit another car in an accident.  Your insurance would pay up to $50,000 per person for injuries up to a total cap of $100,000 if there is more than one person in the car.  And it would pay up to $50,000 in property damage to fix the other car. 


Remember, liability only covers the person that you hit.  It doesn’t cover your vehicle or anyone inside your car. 


There are many different amounts of liability coverage.  We work directly with our clients to determine how much you need.  This will vary based on factors like how many assets you have, your income, and home value. 


Not having enough liability insurance is one of the biggest financial mistakes you can make!  Carrying only the state minimum of 25/50/25, could leave you open to a lawsuit.  Think about those cars you’ve seen on the road worth easily over $25,000!  If you don’t have enough property damage coverage, then you are at risk. 


There is also liability coverage on your homeowners or renters insurance.  It pays if someone is injured on your property due to your negligence.  One common example is a dog bite.  This is another time when it’s good to have enough liability insurance!


Hopefully this clears up any questions you have about how liability insurance works.  If you need help determining the right amount of coverage for your family, give us a call at 770-287-9900 for a no obligation review and quote.
